Woman charged with felony in Breonna Taylor protest hit-and-run The victim was treated for non-life-threatening injuries, officials said.
Police arrested a 25-year-old woman in a hit-and-run incident during demonstrations in Buffalo earlier this week over a Kentucky grand jury's decision not to charge three police officers in the death of Breonna Taylor.
The Buffalo Police Department said it charged Joanna Gollnau, 25, of Buffalo, on Friday with felony reckless endangerment in the first degree and reckless driving for allegedly striking a bicyclist with her pickup truck during a protest in Niagara Square on Wednesday night.
Buffalo police officials said the driver was eventually stopped by officers and detained for questioning.
The protester struck suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was taken to Erie County Medical Center for treatment, police said Wednesday night.
He told the station he was unsure of a motive, and that Gollnau has been cooperating with police.
On July 4, a protester was killed and another was injured when a car barreled into a Black Lives Matter protest on a closed freeway in Seattle. »
